A good plan will consider all aspects including energy efficiencies and how to make the most of architectural features – and it should include all types of lighting – not just the ceiling.
From functional practicalities to different forms that will influence the mood of each room, lighting is your understated hero when it comes to creating inviting spaces and an ambiance all will want to enjoy.
